Is it safe for my 13 year old child to drink a NutriBlast for cholesterol?

Although She is taking natural omega 3'6'9 tablets. What kind of ingredients she might use in a smoothie? Thank you.

Most of our recipes are suitable for children. When it comes to cholesterol, choosing a mostly plant-based diet and consuming ample soluble fiber are the two tops tips I can provide. These two are perfectly safe for children this age.
Almost anything you put in a NutriBlast will benefit you, but pay attention to soluble fiber - this type binds LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods.

For kids, you may want to stay away from some of the fancier boosts like maca powder, but for the most part, by using fresh, whole veggies and fruits - kids are fine to drink some of the same recipes.
We're actually coming out with a kid's nutrition book filled with recipes that includes specific ingredients that provide nutrients for each stage of growth. Keep your eyes posted!
